The 1000 Hills Community Helpers call themselves "Ikhaya Lo Thando"  which is isiZulu for "The Home of Love" and it really lives up to its name.  For the last 30 years they have grown from the community feeding programme delivered from the underneath an acacia tree to the busy Community Centre we see today. The centre is made up of six key initiatives, in addition to the Primary Health Care Clinic, there is a Preschool, Kitchen, Skills Development Programme, Garden and Community Outreach.

GAGA UK supports the Primary Healthcare Clinic with quarterly funding. The Clinic runs five days a week, from 7am - 4pm. The centre employs a resident nurse who is available at the clinic during the week and in case of emergencies during weekends.

To date, the new clinic has seen thousands of patients from the local community. This includes infants, children, men, women, and the elderly. Much emphasis has been placed on education, especially regarding issues related to HIV/AIDS such as nutrition, hygiene, STD's, family planning. The Clinic have a fully equipped 4x4 ambulance, manned by qualified medical staff on the ready, which is available round the clock for emergency callouts. 

The Centre's baby wellness clinic runs every Tuesday where up to 100 babies are seen a day. During the Clinic days, a nurse will see newborn babies with their mothers and assess the health of the baby as well as the mother, ensuring the child is put on the correct formula as needed and that food, clothing and baby consumables are given. Mothers are also educated on breastfeeding and nutrition as well as how to care for their child in the correct and safest way.
